Interesting capability of adding references to your reference manager

I just figured out a pretty interesting and neat tool for searching articles. Open http://scholar.google.com/ and on the right side of search bar you will find a link called "Scholar Preferences." Click on the "Scholar Preferences,", and you will be navigated to a preferencs page. The third preference is Library Link. Write the name of your University library and add it to your preferred library. Now, whenever you search any article or book, a link "Library Search" will appear with every searched item to show that item inyour University library. You can play with other preferences and then go to sixth preference which is Bibliography Manager. Check the radio button "Show Links to inport citations into" "Choose appropriate manager". For example, if you use endnote, choose endnote, and save preferences. Now you can search anything in http://scholar.google.com/. and it will show a link to import to Endnote. Click on the link and if you are using Firefox, it will conveneintly open appropriate handle to import it into Endnote. Check the option which says "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" and Enjoy. Anurag
